    2018 Crystal Ball Thread

    As I have left this rather late I will accept predictions up to the end of January but only those made before next Thursday regarding RMC will be considered valid (20-20 retro vision not counting).
    Award for most of 5 predictions correct (please exercise some self-discipline in sticking to just 5 - no multiples in one sentence danke!)
    Honour for the most extreme prediction that turns out to be correct (My decision is final)
    Dig out the runes, the I-ching and the Tarot and let's go for it!

    So I'll kick off

    Ogier to take his 6th Championship
    The Loeb return turns out not to be what Citroen want from it
    Hyundai replace a driver in the second half of the season
    7 different winners this season
    The title only decided in Australia
    Kris Meeke on Fire -VW so terrified they quit!

    The Citroens still roll

    Ogier takes the driver's thanks to his consistency and composure

    M-Sport Ford take the manu's because of the good team spirit

    Neuville wins title.
    Latvala in trouble again - mentally.
    A huge crash will spark debate about the future of WRC cars and the WRC itself. (hopefully my crystal ball is wrong)
    David Evans praising Evans, although Evans underperforming.
    New manufacturer interest in WRC.

    1) In order to keep things simple for Jon Desborough, before the season begins Kris Meeke will change his name to “The man from Dungannon”

    2) As he is not competing on Monte Carlo, Mads Ostberg joins the WRC all-live commentary team. However he arrives late to the studio citing ‘problems with the hire car’

    3) Skoda confirm at some point this year that they will return to top-flight WRC competition from 2020. As part of this process this will be their last season in WRC2 and their chosen WRC drivers will be placed in Polo R5s in 2019.

    4) Latvala will struggle with increased internal competition from Tanak and Lappi and the greater mental strength he showed in 2017 will begin to suffer.

    5) Forum member NOT will win the Euromillions Lottery and set up ‘Potato Dogs World Rally Team’ so that he can finally put his forthright opinions to the test on the stages.
